Personal Statement

I am passionate about helping individuals live with ease, meaning and fulfillment, and believe that human connection, compassion, and new learning can have a powerful therapeutic impact. My approach is based in mindfulness, which emphasizes a non-judgemental and values based stance. After collaboratively exploring a client’s values and goals, I work with them to understand how their patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors function in the service of their goals. Drawing from CBT, DBT, and ACT, I offer a skills based approach to managing thoughts, feelings or behaviors interfering with their objectives.
